north koreans rally for freedom

This week in downtown Los Angeles, a small group of North Korean refugees staged a rally to appeal for public support in their quest for political asylum: North Koreans sing for a chance at freedom.

Accompanied by more than two dozen Korean American supporters, the group sang "We Shall Overcome" and "God Bless America" to bring attention to their plight.

The refugees risked their lives to escape North Korea, but will have nowhere to go if the United States rejects their asylum appeal. God knows what will happen to them if they're not allowed to stay. North Korea is no joke.
